Taylor Joynson Garrett raid Alexanders

Buzzoni has been a partner at Alexanders, the London-based niche private client firm, since 1994.

Michael Stanford-Tuck, head of TJG's private client department says the synergies between his firm's corporate and private client practices have never been stronger and that Buzzoni arrives "not a moment too soon".

He says: "The internet and IP-rich technology sectors which are keeping the M&A teams busy are peopled by successful high net worth individuals who need and respond to our private client service.
